Top 10 Roofing Design blog posts of 2016

Top 10 Roofing Design blog posts of 2016

It’s December, the sprouts are on and as per tradition SIG are counting down the top ten blog posts.

Here is the first half of the top ten, in reverse order.

10. 5 Broadgate: Hot Melt Roofing at a ground scraping scale
Scraping in at the bottom, as it should, is the case study of the hot melt roofing at 5 Broadgate. When Make Architects needed a waterproofing solution for their latest project in the City of London they turned to IKO PermaTEC hot melt. In this case study SIG set out why and share with you some pictures of this particularly challenging roofscape.

9. Live Blog: Quality in Flat Roofing – Sharing What We Know
Only published last month, this Live Blog of the #PerfectRoof Seminar has swept all before it and snuck in at number 9. The seminar on 23rd November featured two speakers on Birmingham New Street, some very astute advice on Insurance Backed Guarantees and the launch of our Flat Roofing Specifiers Checklist. More about the checklist in the New Year, so don’t forget to sign up to get more posts.

8. Constructing a Copper Clad Ellipse: The Cedar at The Grove Hotel
This is the first of the top ten blog posts to arrive from the company’s sister site at SIG Zinc and Copper. It’s the story of a fabulous copper clad ellipsoidal wedding venue in Hertfordshire, as told by the structural engineer, Michael Wright of AECOM.


7. Blue Roof – what if you must have one?
Over two years ago SIG published a post by Ross Finnie called ‘Blue Roof: Why it is a Bad Idea’. It created a lot of interest and some controversy. Ross’ message was that there are better places to keep rainwater than on the roof – for a number of good reasons. Two years on SIG revisited the topic to see if things have changed, and this blog post was the result.

6. Metal Roofing on the Coast – What You Should Know
The first half of the top ten ends with a post about metal roofing on the coast. Metal remains one of the most popular materials for roofs – but can you use it everywhere? Some of the buildings that best suit a metal roof and the crisp lines and functionality it provides are on the UK coastline. Just think about the minimalist lines, sweeping roofscapes and dynamic views for a moment. And then think about the severity of the weather.

So that’s the first five of the top ten, the top five will be revealed next time.
